    Probably very similar with some differences. Sit down and compare courses carefully. Jobs will be pretty similar.

    I was actually worried that bioscience wont offer many jobs.Can you advise which is a better option for a biomedical scientist and entry into medicine
    As reading for bioscience I wasn't convinced of the career prospectus and thought this might be a risky course.

    To work as a biomed scientist in the NHS you would be better off doing an HCPC accrediated healthcare science course. For grad entry medicine it makes no difference.

    The uni website is far more reliable than unistats. There is no better per se. Go for the more interesting course.
